You can get cyanotoxins, such as microcystins and nodularin (as well as
chlorophylls and carotenoids), as ready-to-use standards from DHI Lab

Subject: commercial production of algal toxins ?
hello ! my name is Dr. Erik Sotka, and I am an assistant professor at the
College of Charleston, in Charleston, SC USA. I am interested in finding
commercial sources of secondary metabolites produced by macro- or
microalgae. I am not interested in sugars, starches, etc....rather, I'd
like to find acetogenins, terpenes, polyphenolics, polyethers, etc....
One of the few sources I know is World Ocean Solutions (Wilmington, NC), who
produces brevetoxins and okadaic acid.
Thanks for any help !
